1983 Volvo 240 GLT Wagon

Classics  /   /  By Tony Piff

This ’83 Volvo Turbo wears California blue plates and boasts just 92k miles—super low for a 240, considering that the drivetrain on these cars can easily last 300k or 400k miles with regular maintenance. A 4-speed manual (plus overdrive) rounds out the fun-to-drive package.

Turbo cars are fun to drive and tend to get driven hard, but the tidy interior seen here suggests responsible, gentle ownership history. Seeing the brittle plastic door pockets intact is very heartening.The rest of the cosmetics look good, with no obviously missing trim pieces or paint damage. Recent mechanical work includes timing belt and water pump, plus new shocks. The air conditioning has been serviced and reportedly blows cold.

240s are iconic cars that continue to hold their value as functional, quirky drivers.  Over 1,400 1974-1990 Volvo 240s sold on eBay Motors in the past two years, with the best examples averaging $3,900. Turbo Volvo 240s averaged $5,200. This looks like the one to get. See the listing here.
